Enter Reaper Bones Kickstarter!
These represented and affordable way to get my collection of dedicated roleplaying minis up to speed. The Bones II Kickstarter continued in the same vein and these are from that project.
This group represents King Skorg Ironskull, Queen Vanja, and a Body Guard.
I've based these using gravel chips, which makes the bases quite heavy, to keep in theme with the Fire Giants from the Bones I group I did earlier. That group had yellow spot colors instead of the green I used here. I like the green better and am imagining the difference to be due to this being a Royal group while the previous set was rank and file warriors.
I really like the body Guard model. It's simple but has enough little decorations to differentiate it from the regular warriors.
The skin was worked up from Vallejo Rose Brown and a wash of Secret Weapon Ruby.
The Base was Painted with Americana Alizarin Crimson. This is a very inexpensive craft paint and really useful for times like this since the tiny gravel really eats a lot of paint on the base coat. This was then dry brushed with Reaper Fire Orange twice. GW Blood for the Blood God was applied to make little valleys of deep red and then a final, light, dry-brush of Vallejo Sunny Skin Tone to tie it all together.
Yellow metals were Army Painter Gold, Secret Weapon Flesh Wash, Vallejo Model Color Gold and Fantasy Forest Rustungs Farbe... (read silver of some sort)
